The sword clanked to the floor. The blade seeped back into the cavern's dirt ground. I stepped back while the other was draining energy by the second. I fell to my knees. Off to the side, I saw her, probably out cold.
The man spoke "Danny Ignis. I thought you'd be a tougher challenge."
I just kneeled there, hoping for death it seemed like. Then, I managed a smile.
"Why are you laughing child!" He bellowed through the cavern
I stood back up, with my eyes a crimson, bloody red. A spark flickered on my palm then morphed into a fire. I hurdled the ball of fire at the man. The man easily burned it out.
"You really believe a little fireball will kill me." he asked, certainly trying to be arrogant.
"No." I said, finally speaking.
Another flame bickered into my palm, but started to stretch out to form the shape of a spear. I struck the floor and the cavern's ground burned with a fiery passion. The man, surprisingly, fell to the ground with burn marks around his torso. He looked up and saw me, now with a flame in my hand.
"Very well," said the man standing up. "You want a fight? You'll get one!" He said as the cavern shook and was submerged by darkness.
"Come on, we're losing him!" said a voice
All I could see was a bright white light blazing into my eyes. I could feel my heart race going slower and slower by the second.
"Hurry to the ER!" said a second voice
I heard a door being smashed open. The wheels on my bed were shaking with each step the doctors took.
"Come on Harrison, hurry up!"
Another set of doors opened then I felt myself being thrown onto a bed. My vision was better, but not by much. I could make out the doctors running around the room, trying to find something.
"Where is- haha!" said a doctor far off into the room.
He was holding up a syringe filled with an orange liquid.
"Are you sure that's the right one? I thought it was green? Maybe we should keep-"
"Fredrick, the boy is seconds from death. We don't have time. Harrison," he said handing it to the doctor. "here. You do it."
The doctor rushed over to me and whispered into my ear "Fingers crossed."
I was about to ask him why, but then he injected me with the syringe then I whited out.
I awoke the next day. I was still in the hospital, but I still had my clothes on from the day before. I tried to recall what happened the night before. I was at home, eating ice cream. I started to fell funny after a couple minutes. Then we were in the car. I had nuts in my ice cream. I was allergic to nuts. That's the reason. I mean , what else could it have been?
"Mom.....da-....wait." I croaked out
I remembered. My dad was de-....well I don't know. He was considered M.I.A by the army. But....I don't know if that's the whole story. At my Dad's remembering, which was at a park we always went to, I swore I saw him standing on the hill at the park. We met eyes then he gave me a wink then he was gone. Gone. Forever out of my life. For some time, I believed it. I believed...
